Privado



Address: 1F., No.35, Ln. 24, Kinmen St., Zhongzheng Dist., Taipei / 中正區金門街24巷35號 1F

MRT:  Guting

Hours:  Daily: 17:00 - 01:00

Privado is a hidden gem of the Taipei craft beer scene. A small and unassuming bar on a back street near Guting MRT is among Taipei's best in terms of craft beer selection.

The interior is pleasant and warm and the centerpiece, tiled bar table, provides a perfect setting for drinking great beer and meeting great new friends. The bar is tended by the owner Dennis, who is very friendly and happy to offer recommendations for your next beer or wine.

The small, intimate bar does not draw big crowds, but it is an excellent place for a drink with a date, or friends. Branded as a craft beer bar, Privado does not serve cocktails, however, some shots are available. The lack of spirits is certainly made up for by the amazing selection of beer, with other 267 different beers available.

Overall, Privado is an awesome little bar for beer and wine drinkers, and we'll worth a visit for any beer-enthusiast in Taipei.

Taipei, Taiwan 104

Hours:  Daily: 11:00 - 02:00


Located in a busy Taipei's business district, My Other Place, is a long-lasting pub serving up cold pints and pub-food to local regulars and business travelers.  

Founded in the mid-nineties, My Other Place has a friendly neighborhood feel that has lasted dor 20 years. Its owners and bar staff are very friendly and provide excellent service that is coupled with its typical Western pub look to create an atmosphere that reminds many foreigners of their favorite watering hole back home.   

A regular crowd of local office workers frequent the bar as well as many travelers from the nearby hotels  drawing a decent lunch and evening crowd from the offices. Many of the patrons are regulars, who are happy to greet new arrivals and casual drop-ins.  Unfortunately, as newer bars and clubs gain prominence in the city, fewer drinkers are interested in visiting a classic pub.   In recent years, My Other Place is often fairly empty, even on weekend nights.

My Other Place has a good selection of spirits for cocktails, in addition to draft Carlsberg and local craft beer from 23 Brewing.

              Saturday: 10:30 ~ 02:00
              Sunday: 10:30 ~ 24:00


A welcome addition to a already trendy neighborhood, Corner Office brings a Southern Californian atmosphere to Taipei.

Although Corner Office is officially branded as a restaurant serving new-American cuisine, it's impressive selection of draught beer piped through a ten-tap wall make it a must-visit destination for beer-enthusiasts.  The taps feature a range of imported imported macro-beers and locally brewed craft beers. Those intimidated by the assortment may opt to be aided by the beer selecting spin-wheel behind the bar.    Corner Office, also offers a selection of imported wines in addition to a range of spirits to satisfy cocktail drinkers.

Corner Office's styling is that of an American gastro-pub and it's impressive wall of beer-tap-handles is worth the visit alone.  The vintage Hollywood movie posters that adorn the walls contribute to the Californian vibe, of this awesome bar/restaurant.

Corner Office is an awesome place to down a few pints (even if it is officially a restaurant), and my only complaint is that they aren't open later.

Elektro is one of Taipe's hottest new nightclubs and a welcome addition to the club scene.   Opening in late 2013, Elektro occupies the seventh floor of the ATT4Fun building which has long since established itself as hotbed of partying with the highly popular Myst Club two floors above.

Elektro brings together the same well-heeled club as it's predecessor at the base of 101.  The familiar ambiance of overhead lighting displays and a packed dancefloor will not disappoint long-time fans of Elektro.    An entire wall of the club is windowed, looking out over the Xinyi district, adding to the stylish feel of the club.  While the dancefloor is the focus of the nightclub, it often fills up to the point of being overcrowded, allowing little space for any real dancing.

Drinks and cover don't come cheap, as is the norm for a club popular with many Taiwanese celebrities and socialites.

Ounce Taipei

MRT: Xinyi-Anhe

Hours: Monday - Saturday 19:00 to 02:00

Ounce Taipei is a cocktail snob's utopia in the middle of Taipei.  Hidden away behind a secret door in a non-descript café, Ounce's expert mixologists serve up custom made cocktails to suit the most refined of alcoholic palates.


Ounce is a bar built around a passion for good drinks, good food, good company, and good times and they pay tribute to the ounce-noble profession of bartending.

Custom cocktails tailor made to match the individual tastes of each patron can cost a pretty-penny, but for connoisseurs of skillfully mixed cocktails, the resulting beverage is well worth the price. Imported craft beer's are also available, but really, who goes to a place like this for a beer?

The decor honor's the speakeasys of prohibition-era USA, complete with a secret entrance.   Bartender/mixologists are appropriately attired in pre-1933 garb, and the relatively contemporarily dresed patrons come from a mixed background of well-heeled Taiwanese and ex-pats.

Ounce is easily among the top of Taipei's (Taiwan's?) best dedicated cocktail bars.

The bar-staff are friendly, chatty and entirely female which is to be expected from the hostess-bar nature of most combat-zone bars.  Additional entertainment is provided by pay-to-play pool and foosball tables as weel as plama TV's screening the best of the world's sporting events.

Moderately-priced draught beer at NT$600 a pitcher or NT$150 for a pint compliments a menu of standard pub cocktails.

Those who appreciate a good, classic, dive-bar should not miss out on My Place.

No beer on tap, but the standard big bottles of Taiwan Gold medal and classic are backed up by a range of standard pub spirits.   The bar staff is friendly and happy to take on patrons in a game of Liar's Dice.

Some may say that the decor could use a refurbishing but in reality it has the perfect dive-bar grime and ambiance that many bar-goers crave.   Perfectly unrefined.

The chalkboard drink menu along the side wall includes a wide range of notably strong cocktails in addition to bottles of Taiwan Gold Medal and imported Macro lagers priced at a reasonable NT$90 per small bottle.
Zoo is a nice place for a quiet drink with friends but don't expect to meet hoards of new friends at this quit , classy little locale.
